I first came across this when I ran out of moisturiser and went hunting in my sisters room for something to use. I used it a couple of times and absolutely loved it so I went out and bought some of my own, despite it costing much morethan I would normally spend at £28 for a 50ml jar.
The jar it comes in is really sturdy and heavy which gives it a really high quality feel that suits such an expensive product, and the design is simple but expensive looking which makes it something that looks good displayed in my bathroom or on my dresser. It has a lid that screws off easily and a little plastic cover to go over the top so the moisturiser doesn't end up in the lid even if you have it in a bag when travelling.
The gel itself has a really lovely texture which glides so easily over my skin and simply melts in. It absorbs so quickly and feels cool and fresh on my skin. I have combination oily skin and I find a lot of moisturisers leave it feeling dirty, greasy, clogged or coated, but this is so light and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean.
My skin feels really soft after using this and even the drier parts of my skin stay hydrated all day so it doesn't get uncomfortable and I don't need to reapply it throughout the day. Amazingly it also keeps my skin shine-free throughout the whole day which is essential for me as my t-zone usually tends to get really shiny by midday.
I have noticed a definite improvement in the overall texture of my skin since I've been using this regularly, my skin is much smoother and softer and I haven't had any dry patches at all. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone with combination skin like mine who's looking for something light feeling but very hydrating. The only downside is that it doesn't have any sun protection.
Summary: A fantastic moisturiser for combination skin
